Suggestions for remainder of April

Finish reading Chapter 17 and go over the review questions and vocabulary for each lesson as extra practice.

You can create vocab quizzes for yourself and your family! You can also create quizzes with questions from the lessons you have read and test your parents to see how much history they remember! Make it a game and have some fun.

 

Once you have finished Chapter 17, begin looking through Chapter 18. This chapter includes the World Wars and some other interesting times of war. Look up a documentary or two online about the wars! Make sure to go over the review questions at the end of each lesson to check yourself for comprehension.

You all should be finished with your papers for your social studies fair and should just have your boards left to finish. Please be working on your boards during this time at home and get them completed.

We are going to start our next chapter since you all are almost done with the social studies fair requirements.
